Oliver Kahn: Okocha’s goal Makes Me Dizzy
Oliver Kahn has disclosed that he is yet to recover from the wonder goal he conceded against Nigeria’s Austin Jay Jay Okocha in a Bundesliga fixture between Eintracht Frankfurt and Karlsruhe in 1993.
Okocha who came on as a second half substitute for Eintracht Frankfurt provided an assist and scored his wonder goal, by dribbling the entire back-line of Karlsruhe before slotting the ball past Kahn to secure a 3-1 win.
The former Bayern Munich skipper paid a tribute to the Nigerian legend as he recalled the encounter exactly 23 years after on his Twitter page.
“Exactly 23 years is the sensational goal from Jay-Jay Okocha today ago – and I’m still dizzy …,” kahn tweeted.
The goal was voted as 1993 Goal of the year by viewers of Sportschau (an ARD German TV sports programme).
Exakt 23 Jahre ist das sensationelle Tor von Jay-Jay Okocha heute her – und mir ist immer noch schwindelig…
